This typically indicates different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also indicate that the one champ has less agility and thus is unable to kite away from further damage when engaged or poked.

In Olaf vs Ekko matchups, Olaf commonly racks up many fewer minion kills than Ekko. Champions that don't amass very much CS typically don't need much CS to be useful. Instead, they are capable of scaling easily off their skills and stats alone. However, champions with scores of minion kills, such as ADCs, typically require a lot of items to be effective. In either case, try to beat the averages presented here to do well.
